Research interests
Humans are part of most wildlife habitat. Today´s expansion of human activity increases not only the frequency of contacts between wildlife and humans year-around, but also leaves long-lasting ecological footprints in wildlife habitat. The overarching goal of my research is to improve our understanding of the ecological effects of the structure and the dynamics of human activity on wildlife. My main interests concern the behaviour and movement ecology of wildlife within the context of landscape ecological aspects, specifically with respect to human-wildlife interactions. Within my area of research I combine empirical and GIS-based approaches using statistical and spatial analysis. Currently, I am studying animal movement behaviour and resource utilization in the mountainous landscape, and the impact of wind park development.
